The exhibition is a special project within the Moscow International Biennale for Young Art “A Time for Dreams”.
“One place next to another” consists of works from 23 emerging and renowned artists from Russia, Germany, Ukraine and Switzerland. About half of the works on show were commissioned by WINZAVOD and produced specially for the exhibition. The exhibition deals with the notion of “place” in contemporary society and the problem of “site-specificity” in contemporary art. The focus of attention is shifted from a single place to its relations which deeply influence art and society: the relations of art with technology, of technology with nature, of the local with the global etc. The exhibition creates a network of interrelated places – punctuated with borders and transition zones, open for interpretation. The artists attempt to find a form for the sites and subjects of contemporary life – with the materials that surround them.Download PDF
